That explains why he so fat before 2021. He was smashing beers all the time. Beer will do that to you.

We need to stop giving these "addictions" power that they don't have or deserve. They aren't the devil, the monster, boogie man or anything else. If you indulge in them to the point that they negatively impact your life...MODIFY YOUR BEHAVIOR.

Stop living in fear that you're gonna relapse and that the devil is gonna get you and all will be lost you worthless POS. Hate is not the opposite of Love, Fear is the opposite of Love. Don't live in fear of anything. Incrementally modify your behavior towards these things and you can reduce your consumption of them. Stop fearing falling off the wagon (counting the days) and then potentially feeling like a POS in the face of the all powerful monster that is alcohol/drugs/sex/food etc.

Modify your use of these things downward and if you go back to your old ways...try again. Don't beat yourself up...try again. It's you, not some outside force. Baby steps.

Not a Lane Kiffin fan, but I'm happy for him. Alcoholism is the devil.

I'm happy for him but I heard a good take lately. The guy asked Theo Von how long he was sober and Theo replied with a year and month count. The guy then asked him why he was counting? He asked Theo if he smoked and Theo said no. He then asked him why he wasn't counting that. The moral of the story is never drinking ever again is a life change, there's no point in counting UNLESS you plan on doing it again.

I get what you’re saying but I have to disagree. Doing something as life changing as quitting drinking you remember the day. Maybe not exactly how long it’s been but you remember the date bc it holds such high importance to you. Just like getting married or birth of a child. Something’s you just never forget.

I do understand where you’re coming from as I’ve known several people who take breaks and they are counting down or keeping track constantly.

I definitely disagree. AA celebrates milestones from a 24 hr chip, to 1-12 months incremental by month, then 18 months, then multiple years.

Quitting drinking/drugs is the hardest thing one will have to do in life. Harder than anything, and I went to a top 15 world university on scholarship. Quitting drinking/drugs was harder than that. It's your base emotional state that you aren't satisfied with. Your being your not satisfied with to need it. Quitting the things that give you reprieve is so hard.

People with 10+ years count their years.

Nothing wrong with celebrating something that you have to work at and I wouldn't be shocked to learn someone saw that very tweet and changed up some habits. This is a positive.

He's sending a positive message to the masses. Sheesh, what a putz.

Because he still fears the "Boogie Man/Monster" that he's labeled his drinking problem. This puts pressure on himself to not fall off the wagon and look weak to the masses.

If only he'd commit to leaving co-eds and X alone, the world would be a better place.

It probably isn’t a coincidence that the head coach sobered up and the team has had the best run in their history. Then again, Bear Bryant won 6 nattys, and he drank like a fiddler, so maybe it is a coincidence.

Anyone who realizes they have a problem and does something about it to better themselves, has my up most respect. Good for you coach.

The letters P and T aren't near each other so I'm going to rule out it being a typo.

It's utmost, not up most.

Best decision I've ever made. I drank heavily after my sister passed last January. Was drunk every single day and night for 9 months until I went to rehab. At a certain point, you have to choose YOURSELF over a substance. I wish all the best to Lane and he's awesome for using his platform to share the message. Drugs and alcohol do not love you. Your friends and family do.

Well said. I’m sorry for your loss and I’m sure your sister is looking down on you as proud as she can be. I have family members who have refused to get help and it’s the hardest thing to watch.

Wow I’m sorry for your loss. May I ask how she passed away ?

He was sick and tired of being sick and tired. One point just kinda sticks out to me, even though no big whoop in the grand scheme of things. When he says “it may seem simple” etcetera etcetera……if a person’s initial, gut thought is “hmm, seems simple enough,” then he or she ain’t real deep into an addiction. When one finally comes to terms with the gravity of the problem, of the situation, his gut thought will in all likelihood be “this will be impossible.” And/or “I’m beyond help.” That’s your rock bottom right there.
